  1. For the kids in the crowd … my first HD was 20 MB – on an “enterprise” system. My first “personal” HD was a mere 5 MB, brand spanking new and many dollars per MB. That was only about twenty years ago (the 5 MB drive).


  2. You whippersnappers. My first “computer” was an Underwood with a two-color ribbon (black & red), and it didn’t even have an Apple key! You had to draw the Apple symbol by hand. On the plus side, it didn’t require power. Or a screen.

  3. I said my first HD – not computer – was 5 MB. I’d resisted buying smaller ones for even more dollars per MB. The 5 MB HD plugged into a C=128D, a floppy-based system. My wife was using a dual-floppy Osbourne 1 at the time, with a built-in 128K RAM drive. My C=128D also sported a RAM drive, and an external 3″ “floppy” drive.
    My wife’s current 20″ AliMac is quite amazing, in contrast. And it cost less than that 5 MB HD! Still … are these large programs – from Apple, no less – designed to force a continuous system upgrade? It makes good business sense, that’s certain, but … give me a break, OK?
